Look, if your trunk is filled with hundreds of dollars of equipment, don’t leave it open.
A livery cab driver learned that valuable lesson on Feb. 13 when he left his trunk open while he worked on his car in the parking lot on Fourth Avenue near Third Street at around 12:15 pm.
He told cops that his attention was diverted for just a few minutes, but it was long enough for a thief to take a radio, a camera and $25.
One thief certainly moved fast on Feb. 12, swiping a wallet that had been left on a Seventh Avenue bodega counter for just five minutes.
The victim told cops that he paid for some food inside the market at around 5:15 pm. He remembered leaving his wallet on the counter, but said he returned to the store, which is between 10th and 11th streets, within five minutes to find it gone.
He lost $150, cards and a Pratt Institute ID.
